Self-funding your long-term care – your options

Few of us can afford to pay the high cost of long-term care out of our day-to-day income. If you need to pay for care – don’t worry. There are other ways to finance your care.

Why you may need to pay for long-term care

  • You don’t qualify for local authority funding.
  • You want to enhance your care by paying a little more.
  • You need to make up a care fees shortfall.

Check your entitlements

Before you do anything, check you’re claiming all the state and other benefits you’re entitled to.

Make sure you’ve checked out all the local authority and NHS funding options too.
